Given developments in Eastern Europe and the Soviet Union, continued reductions in American defense outlays are warranted. In fact, Bush should be able to throttle back defense spending by another one percent to two percent this year. But these cuts should be made cautiously and deliberately. They should be made in areas where the threat to the U.S. has receded. And they should be made in a way that will allow America to reverse course quickly should the need arise.
